How much does a tattoo stretch after pregnancy?

I’m turning 18 in a few months, and my birthday present will be a tattoo!! I’d like to get a rose vine that starts around my arms, stretches down to my back, twists on my side, and rests on my pelvic bone. Here’s the thing: I would like to have at least one kid down the road. How badly will this stretch the tattoo? Will it be ruined?

PS I’m a size 5 if that has to do with anything. Pretty average.
